Hoist Rope Cappels – Thimble



A hoist rope cappel is a specialized piece of equipment used in underground mines to securely attach the end of a hoist rope to a winding engine. It is a metal fitting that crimps onto the rope, preventing it from slipping or breaking under the immense weight it carries. Thimble cappel can be fitted to both, locked coil and stranded hoist ropes. However, it is more suitable for stranded hoist ropes. The rope passes around a wedge shaped thimble which operates within two rigid side plates and the rope is gripped in fixed grooves fitted between the sideplates.
